In order to expand the landing areas and application range of vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircrafts, this article proposes a new type of landing gear robot. The robot is mainly composed of a base and three limbs with planar parallel mechanisms. The control system collects depth data through a depth camera, and fuses attitude angle and velocities to establish terrain data of the landing area. According to the terrain data and the robot kinematics model, the driving variables are calculated and used to drive the robot to achieve the adaptive landing.
